Dry Grad is an event which provides students with a safe, drug and alcohol-free environment to celebrate their graduation.  It is a fully supervised fun event, sponsored by the parents, where the grads can party with their friends, be entertained and participate in a fun-filled, action-packed night of celebration.

Dry Grad takes place after the dinner dance on Friday June 14th, 2013.  It will occur at the Ladner Community Centre and run from midnight until 6:00 am June 15th.  Grads leave the dinner dance around midnight and return to Ladner for a quick clothing change before heading to the Dry Grad Event.  The grads must be in the door by a set time and they do not have in/out privileges.

HOW YOU CAN HELP?

As in prior years, we are requesting an up-front, one-time only cash family contribution of $100.00 to offset the cost and greatly decrease the amount of fundraising required. The contribution is not in lieu of volunteering. For anyone who is unable to contribute their time to this event – we will gladly accept more. For cheques of $100 and more received and dated on or before November 1st, your name will be entered in a draw to win 4 front row seats for the grad walk. 

Cheques are to be written to “DSS DRY GRAD” and either mailed to Delta Secondary School @ 4615- 51st Street, Delta, BC V4K 2V8 or dropped off in the box located in the school office.
